Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Already Renewed For Seasons 3 AND 4
Praise Satan! Wait, can I say that without getting sued? Anyway, we’re thrilled that Chilling Adventures of Sabrina has officially been renewed for parts three and four at Netflix.
We’ve come a long way from the darkest timeline we were facing when it looked like CAOS could get taken off of Netflix because they plagiarised a statue from the Church of Satan. It would have been so easy to just not include the creepy children flanking the goat-man idol thingy but no, they had to go all Shia LaBeouf on everyone and blatantly copy someone else’s stuff. You’d think the creators of a show about Satan-worshippers would know better than to piss off a bunch of actual Satan-worshippers but to each their own. Thankfully, Netflix settled out of court and now we get to look forward to two more seasons of the emo-chic Archie Comics television series.
Netflix has ordered sixteen more episodes to be spread out over the two parts, and production will commence in 2019 because these poor actors can never just get some sleep. The Midwinter’s Tale holiday special was released over the weekend, and Part Two is dropping on Friday, April 5. The teaser for Part Two is already out on YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram, proving that
Mrs. Wardwell the Devil works hard but Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa works harder.

“Praise Satan! I’m so grateful to my partners at Warner Bros., Netflix, Berlanti Television and Archie Productions for supporting this darker vision of the world’s most famous teen witch,” Aguirre-Sacasa said. “And I’m thrilled to be continuing to tell Sabrina’s chilling adventures with our incredible cast and crew, led by the unstoppable Kiernan Shipka.”
Netflix doesn’t release viewership information, but CAOS has super high ratings on Rotten Tomatoes and is basically the only thing we write about for this website, so its safe to say the Teenage Witch will have a long adolescence if CAOS keeps up this level of success.
We won’t know if our other edgy comic book fave Riverdale will get a fourth season until April, but its ratings are still pretty decent so we’ll probably get another twenty-two episodes of our favorite sexually active teens running white gangs and stripping to songs from 2001. The real question is when CAOS will hit a creative wall and default into a bunch of musical numbers no one asked for (and one musical theatre episode we ~all~ asked for). My bet is right before season four, but since A Midwinters Tale was basically a truncated Buffy The Vampire Slayer rip off, it might come sooner than we thought.
Jokes aside, we are obsessed with CAOS and we’re thrilled we get to spend more time staring at confused brunette Ross Lynch while living out our Wicca fantasies vicariously through Kiernan Shipka, Chance Perdomo, and middle-aged Cheryl Blossom.
